If the job is lost, is the residence permit also lost?
No, when a foreign worker loses his job, the employer who appointed him must notify the single window and the relevant employment center within five days from the date of dismissal. The employment center provides the possibility of enlisting the worker in the list of personal data, or updating the status of the worker if it has already been entered. The worker retains inclusion in this list for the remaining validity period of the residence permit and, in any case, except for the seasonal worker, for a total period of at least one year. If you do not have a new job before your residence permit expires, you can apply for a pending employment residence permit.
Who can a residence permit holder who is looking for a business contact to communicate with companies wishing to hire employees?
The law guarantees foreign workers legally residing in Italy and their families the same treatment and rights as Italian workers. So, like them, you can call:
- to public employment services (employment centers, municipalities, universities, chambers of commerce);
- or to private employment services (employment agencies and other operators).
